Meeting called to order 1930 by President

We were joined by Rob and Thomas

Open Mike Nite: all are fee to discuss

Had a long discussion between Rob and the President concerning Cooperate mentality and the development of open source drivers. Rob contended that a proprietor router company (here in after called "routerco") was contemplating a total switch to open source for its operating system. Apparently the Free Software Foundation subsequently sued "routerco" for violating open source licensing which, of course, caused "routerco" to drop its migration plans. Rob argued that in this case the FSF had done something to actually stop the spread of open source soft ware.
